The Enugu State government has reminded the people and residents of the state that the ban on the illegal Monday sit-at-home order remains effective.
In view of this, the government directed civil servants, schools, markets, financial institutions, business premises, and others to resume normal activities on Monday.
This latest directive was contained in a statement issued yesterday night by the Secretary to the State Government, Prof. Chidiebere Onyia.
Onyia restated the government’s resolve to apply sanctions against defaulters of its cancellation of the illegal Monday sit-at-home order in the state.
“Markets that fail to open to customers on Monday shall be shut down indefinitely.
“Shops in the markets that close on Monday shall be sealed and re-allocated to those eager to do business in the state.
“Government extends the same warning of sanctions against schools, financial institutions, shopping malls, department stores, business premises, and others that may defy its directive,” Onyia said.
The government reiterated that the illegal sit-at-home order was totally at odds with the Igbo spirit of industry, hard work, enterprise, productivity, and creativity.
“The general public is urged to go about their normal daily activities as adequate security measures have been put in place to protect lives and property”, the release said.
